As the season begins to hit the home stretch, the OSCAAR Modifieds will be busy as they will partake in a double header at Sauble Speedway on September 1st and 2nd for Labor Day Weekend.
Gary Elliott will be looking to score his fifth straight top-10 this weekend after picking up a win at the beach earlier this month.
Luke Gignac will hope to keep the momentum rolling into the beach this weekend as he has posted four straight top-six finishes. Notably, he has scored a pair of top-fives at Sauble, including a runner-up earlier this month.
John Harper will be looking to keep the momentum going as he has posted only one finish outside of the top-four this year, which was a seventh at Sauble at the beginning of August. It’s worth noting that he has four prior top-10 finishes at Sauble, including a fourth last year.
The driver to watch this weekend could be Cory Horner as he will enter with the points lead and momentum after with only one finish outside of the top-eight this season. Also, it’s worth noting that he won at Sauble last year, too.
Dale Reinhart is also looking forward to building upon his strong run at Sauble as he placed third for his fourth straight top-five. Notably, he posted a pair of sevenths at Sauble last year.
Wally Wilson hopes to repeat the success that he had last year at Sauble as it was the sight of his first career OSCAAR top-10 finish. He has a best result of 11th this season, coming at Sauble Speedway earlier this month.
After a rough start to the year, Jase Cornell will be hunting for his fifth straight top-10 finish following a season-best fifth at Sauble earlier this month. Notably, the beach has always seemed to treat him well as he finished fourth last year there.
The 2018 rookie of the year candidates – Jason Bowden, Jason Keen, and Jeff Showler – have each impressed this season with lots of speed and ability behind the wheel.
Bowden enters this weekend hoping to score his second straight top-10 following a 10th at Sauble at the beginning of August.
Showler enters this weekend hoping to carry forward the positive momentum from a strong fourth-place finish earlier this month. Notably, he has scored four podiums in 2018.
Keen hopes to find his steady consistency once again after three straight top-11 finishes, including an eighth at Sauble earlier this month.
Tyler Di Venanzo will look to keep building experience with his fourth series start of the season, following back-to-back 12th-place finishes.
Marshall Schrenk will be looking to put some momentum together following three straight top-10 finishes.
Duane Cinnamon will hope to have a smooth day at Sauble Speedway after failing to finish in the top-10 the past two races, despite winning a heat at Peterborough. He did well earlier this year, as he finished fifth at Sunset Speedway at the beginning of July.
Dan Price will be looking for his second straight top-10 following a season-best eighth at Peterborough.
